If you're lucky enough to be born with green eyes

You'll be able to photosynthesise.

Just stand, nude, in the sunlight for three or four days,

Your arms extended to soak up the rays,

With a leaf in your left hand and a twig in your right,

Adopting the foetus position at night.

Attempt circular breathing (that's if you know how to)

And for better results try to stand in warm cow poo.

This is how country folk go without eating,

Digesting, ingesting and even excreting.

It'll probably work, though it's rarely been tested

And in some neighbourhoods you may well get arrested.
